A complete sensory exploration on all levels, powerful, moving and raw. This series of beautifully made, tender, smart, super-sexxxxy shorts created by queer/feminist porn collective AORTA films. Seeks to explore the incredible potency of queer hedonism, specifically how authentic performative kink has the power to transform trauma and grief into body-based joy and orgasms. At turns lush, humorous, sincere, erotic, joyful, and intense, (W/HOLE) forsakes traditional expectations of “porn” to create an unexpectedly textured landscape of desire.
Amidst ecstatic water balloon fights, opulent feasts devoured without utensils, narrations of pleasure, lewd hand gestures, densely scored orgies, improvisational performance, and intense kink dynamics, (W/HOLE) proposes a new type of pornography: a world of queer sex that is at once surreally lush and intensely real. The film celebrates queer pleasure as a type of queer resistance, while inviting viewers of all identities towards their own human capacity for pleasure.
